What is your opinion?

My boyfriend is a Marine. He's often on the road, sometimes for a couple days, sometimes a couple weeks. Tonight a girl sent him a picture of herself at a rodeo (her face with the rodeo behind her). He showed me the pic and told me it was a friend of his. I asked where he met her, and he told me that they met while he was on the road, at an airshow. There are no rules against making friends, but I don't understand why he'd want to get her number. He said he got her number because she was nice. Maybe I'm just young and naive, but it upset me. I give him credit for showing me the picture and not hiding it from me. He said, "Obviously I didn't think it'd be a big deal if I showed it to you." Any thoughts or words of wisdom?

  • I'd listen to the man. Some men don't want secrets from their partner.

  • I wonder if he would respond the same way? I don't know what to say... its shallow but I guess it would depend on how hot she was.

  • That's what I said. How would you feel if I went on the road and started getting other mens' phone numbers. She wasn't hot, but not ugly... at least in my opinion. Haha.
